Next we ask the children to remember a time when they didn't have enough or the right information, and write a short paragraph about it. Then when done, we ask anyone to share. This is a fun exercise and everyone gets a laugh . Even the staff have had this experience and this helps bind us together in understanding and camaraderie.
Now is the time when we have a short lesson from Dr. Glasser. He says that in a situation in which you feel that something or someone is unfair, it is important to remember that it doesn't matter whose fault it is or whether it actually is fair or unfair.
The reason to focus on what you do is because what you do is all you can control. There's no point in talking about what anyone else does,m because you can't control what they do. No matter how hard you try, the only person's behavior you can control is your own. Can anyone control you? Can anyone make you do anything you really don't want to do? People try - in any relationship people try to control each other, but the question is, does this help the relationship or hurt the relationship?
